Learn Debra’s easy techniques for producing realistic floral quilts with oversized images. In this concentrated one-day workshop the participant will use an original flower drawing (20” x 24”) provided by the instructor. We’ll translate this into fabric using contemporary, fast and fusible appliqué methods, innovative art techniques and without turning an edge. You’ll learn color theory, value and how to integrate non-cotton fabrics into the composition. Also, there is a color and fabric painting demonstration that leads to students painting on their own sampler with teacher provided supplies. Participants may bring in 1-3 flower photographs for the instructor to privately show design and composition possibilities. For beginner through advanced. $5. Materials fee.
